St. John Missions

This Month's Mission

December:
UCC Christmas Fund
A special offering of the UCC to remember those who serve our church. It provides financial aid to retired and active ministers and their surviving spouses and children who face overwhelming financial demands, a ministry carried out by the Pension Boards. Received annually on the Sunday before Christmas.

 
Gifts for Children in Need
Partnering with District 21 Illinois State Police, we are helping 7 families with a total of 21 children. Each family will receive a food box made up of non-perishable food items brought in November plus a turkey, ham, potatoes and bread. The children will receive toys, games and clothing. Part of the funding for this project is the 12,790 Pennies for Praise brought by the children to worship throughout the year.
